Gerald Davis is an artist living and working in Los Angeles. He is represented by Parker Jones Gallery in Los Angeles, Salon 94 and John Connelly Presents, both in New York. His work has been reviewed in Art in America, The New York Times, and the New Yorker and is part of the public collections at both the Whitney and Hammer Museums.
Themes of sexuality, longing and lost innocence run throughout Gerald Davis’s work. Salvaging from his own personal experiences, Davis’s paintings often capture the turbulence of youth, championing all its awkwardness, embarrassment and sentimentality. Executed with the chastity of cartoon illustration, Davis’ fairytale images are cringe-worthy disclosures of preteen puppy-love, weaving shame and humiliation into Freudian celebrations of identity and acceptance.
